The KNX National Group of New Zealand and the Electrical Contractors Association of New Zealand (ECANZ) are proud to announce that they will be working together in New Zealand to promote the move towards compatible platforms across the electrical industry.
KNX is the worldwide standard for home and building control and automation and ECANZ is the peak body of the electrical industry in New Zealand. The two organisations share important synergies given the wide range of electrical and communications products available in the New Zealand market.
“ECANZ is keen to provide the best products and technology for its members so they can provide better solutions for their clients. Compatible platforms and products are beneficial to our members and therefore our support of the KNX standard is a sensible step”, says Chief Executive Neville Simpson.
ECANZ members will benefit from KNX’s manufacturer-independent open protocol providing a truly converged solution in home and building automation on a single platform. Being defined by an international standard (IEC14543), KNX allows ECANZ members to protect the future requirements of a project with the assurance of an international standard.
“The International KNX Association & the KNX National Group of NZ is very pleased to be working with the ECANZ”, commented Ulrich Frerk, President of KNX National Group of New Zealand. “The range of interoperable KNX products on offer from over 340 manufacturers is growing daily and when you look at projects like The Roturua Police Station & The ANZ Tower in Sydney, you see just how complex and varied an electrical installation can be,” he added.
